2017 Chevrolet Malibu: What Failure Looks Like

By  | 

It is clear that sedans are not what the consumers are looking for right now but some models are hit harder than others like the new 2017 Chevrolet Malibu.

After all that Chevrolet has done to the Chevrolet Malibu, it was reported that the vehicle sales dropped by 43% last month. Chevrolet only sold about 8377 units of the Chevrolet Malibu. At the same time last year, they sold a total of 14,746 units.

Most people believe that the huge drop is because people are not more interested in getting crossovers and SUVs so models like the Chevrolet Malibu will be pushed aside now. The Malibu is not the only sedan in the market that is experiencing a sales drop right now and it is speculated that things will stay that way until the consumers get over their SUV and Crossover craze.

Of course, some people also think that Chevrolet also played a role in the downfall of the Malibu. The upgrade failed to impress the consumers at the end of the day.

The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu comes with a 1.5 liter four cylinder engine that will be offering about 160hp. There is also a 2.0 liter four engine that will be offering about 250hp. The engines will be mated to a six-speed auto transmission.

The higher trim models will return about 22mpg in the city and 32mpg on the highway. It will only take 6.1 seconds to go from 0-60mph.
